A soundbar enhances the audio from your television without the need to shell out a lot of money on a full-blown surround-sound stereo system. They’re basically a long, thin enclosure with multiple speakers inside. Keep in mind that they can’t deliver the same sound quality as a full audio system, but they can certainly improve upon your TV’s audio. VIZIO has been in business for over 15 years and offers a range of well-regarded soundbars. Some are sold with a wireless subwoofer. The company’s soundbars range in length from 38” to 54”. Most have Bluetooth connectivity and come with a remote. Some are compatible with the VIZIO SmartCast mobile app, which offers free content, remote control capabilities, content streaming, and advanced settings.
